    HNC credits are NOT tariff bearing - they are university credits and equivalent to the first year of a degree. Tariffs are only awarded to pre-university (level 3) qualification.

    If it isn't clear from university websites/UCAS whether you are likely to get an offer with an HNC then phone universities up and ask them.
